Some adults naturally find the thought of flying very stressful. Throw a child or two (or even three or more!) into the mix, and you could easily find yourself in a very demanding and unnatural situation.
As the head of the family, you will have to deal with the pre-flight preparation, making sure everybody has everything packed, that the house is locked and secure, and that you haven’t left anything or anyone behind (remember Home Alone?)
Then it’s on to the airport, where you have to locate the right check-in desk, whilst keeping the children close-by due to the bustling crowds.
Once you’re on the plane, you have to deal with popping ears, or even sick bags, while trying to keep the children entertained for the duration of your flight.
The experience as a whole is not an easy one, but thankfully www.cheapflights.co.uk has put together a downloadable and very useful eBook: A Guide to Flying with Children.
We have had a read through and we must say the eBook contains some very interesting and extremely valuable tips and ideas to make the flying experience pass smoothly.
The advice is broken down into pre-flight, at the airport and on the plane. It covers different age groups, from babies, to 3-6 years and 7 and above. It also contains an insight into the world of celebrity.
You can download the eBook from the Cheapflights blog. With the school holidays fast approaching it is definitely worth a read.
